What is most valuable in secondary education?

Recommended Posts

I think this article would be spot on if it were talking about a primary education (K-12). The purpose of a college education should be to learn the tools to break into a career field that pays enough and has enough future to be worth pursuing. Once you break into a career field you constantly have to be growing and learning and changing so that you don't become obsolete.

My list would include (for basic k-12):

Communication skills (both written and verbal)

Basic math (and higher depending on the child's interest)

Problem solving skills

Life long learning


Basic sense of history

Exposure to a foreign culture (including language)




I don't think these have really changed over the years.


College is a whole different ball of wax.
